* Record in 1920x1080 if you have the possiblity.
* Use https://send.firefox.com/ to send your recorded file to me.
Try this:

Sorry I can't do 1920x1080. This is the highest I can do on my monitor.

@sliptonic et al.
Okay, I have done a first rough draft of the highlights reel (emphasis on rough). Currently only featuring the Path workbench. I have uploaded it as an unlisted video on Youtube. I would love to get feedback on this :D

I think that's really cool. Just make it... five time longer. :)

IMHO you are on the right track. Is the music open source?

Looking good. If you use creative commons music, you'll need an attribution.

If the other benches don't supply content, you can just make the Path part 5X longer :lol:

Yes, the music is Creative commons from www.bensound.com I will add the attribution

So now we only more screencast-material! Please feel free to ping people that you think could contribute some material

I imagine this is a known thread, but last August, I was looking for something to do and got involved in a similar discussion here:

https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 70#p188170

I ran out of time, but there was a lead or two in that which might be useful here. There was a user who has developed some interesting stuff who, in a PM, told me he was happy to allow his videos to be used to promote FreeCAD. Might want to get in touch with him - his username is cnirbhay...

I dig the music :)
Nicely done so far!
It would be cool to have annotations dropped in here and there to show new features
For example in the FEM workbench there is a long portion of time that could be broken up with some indicators as to what is happening.
pardon my armchair advice.
Again, Great work!
